Product Notes

Album Description The human voice is at the root of all music; it was the first of all the instruments. What makes it so special is that after all these mellennia of human development, it still has the ability to surprise and delight when offered up to us by a new performer. Iris Festenstein is one such artist and one whose own life story is worthy of inclusion amongst this selection of Twelve O'clock Tales. She's aided, in no small measure, by the splendid quartet of musicians who accompany her: pianist and arranger James Pearson, bassist Thad Kelly, drummer Dave Ohm, and Ben Godfrey on trumpet and flugel horn adding further lustre to these lovely interpretations of twelve memorable standards. This glittering collection of musical gems was produced by Ian Shaw and acts as a splendid introduction to the musical artistry of Iris Festenstein. About the Artist Born in South Africa, Iris began her singing career as a small child, performing regularly on radio for the South African Broadcasting Corporation. Her involvement with the struggle against apartheid lead to her exile to England in 1963. This followed the detention of her husband by the apartheid regime along with other political leaders incuding Nelson Mandela. Iris began her acting career in London in 1980 and starting singing jazz again in 1995. Since then she has not only appeared at a variety of London venues including Pizza on the Park and the Vortex Jazz Bar, but also at the Royal Albert Hall with the ANC choir in honour of Nelson Mandela and before the South African President himself. She continues to perform regularly in London.
